"Lingua Franca" Negotiations: Towards an Interactional Approach.
Firth, Alan
World Englishes, v9 n3 p269-80 Win 1990
An interactional approach for studies of English as a nonnative language is proposed. The approach entails the adoption of ethnomethodological perspectives on social knowledge, combined with conversation analytic interests in detailing the locally managed character of spoken interaction, and introducing the term "lingua franca" English to describe the language used exclusively by nonnative speakers.
